This refrigerator is ideal for single/two person household. I had the exact model purchased in July of 1998 at a cost $160.00 higher from a local appliance dealer in Elmhurst than the one purchased from ABT. Kinda wish I purchased the original frig from ABT then. I junked the old one without calling for service. I applied the service call ($125.00-175.00) towards the new unit, afterall, its eleven years old and what else is going to go. The improvements are slight but noticeable. Two separate bins vice one on my original unit plus there is a clear window on shelve above to see the contents of the bins without opening them. The handle is easier to grab being that it is round at the top. It now has a separate butter-keeper that I did not have before. There is a "full" shelf in the freezer from one side to the other vice a half shelf that kept falling if overloaded. The only complaint that I have with the new unit verses the old is that it appears that the freezer is smaller. The vents drawing the cold air down to the refrigerator section are pointed towards the door. The old unit was minus the vents on the floor. Apparently,they were on the top and less efficient.Lastly, I swear by Whirlpool as I have three other major appliances bearing their name and I couldn't be happier. Very reliable.

I am frustrated with the lower door gasket (freezer is on top). The top end corner area of door doesn't close all the way, letting out the cold air. So, for the past weeks I've tried everything such as: applying a little vasoline to help with the seal, putting scotch tape over area where air is coming out, taping the door shut tight, even putting little strips of leather inside the door gasket lip to prop it outward so as to grip onto the refrigerator better. At first I followed the trouble shooting suggestions in the product direction booklet. All have worked (separately or in combo) temporarily to some degree, but at the end of the day (or in a couple hours) the gasket loosens again and cold air escapes. It's now my daily routine to tape the door 3-4 times a day. Whirlpool was recommended to me by a relative who sells refrigerators at a major dept store, and I'm disappointed. Also at some point when I first got the fridge, it froze my food in the lower compartment. But now that doesn't happen, so it may have remedied itself. (or maybe the gasket leak keeps it from freezing). The upper freezer door gasket works great, and I'm very happy about that. For quality, overall all it is fair to average. I almost put in a poor rating due to the ongoing frustrating gasket issue on lower door, but the rest of the fridge (so far) seems okay.

I bought this fridge 3 months ago and love it! Perfect temperatures in both the crisper, freezer and the fridge. Clean lines and tons of room!

This was a great purchase! It has been about 6 weeks now. I can not believe how quiet it is compared to my old one. And it doesn't seem to run nearly as much. I like the overall quality and would certainly recommend one.

Big things fit in this small package
from Cokato, Mn
We were limited on the size of this fridge, its a small kitchen. But we are able to fit several gallons of milk, cases of beverages, wine bottles. It holds alot despite its small size. No problems in the 8 weeks we've had it. Would recommend this fridge, and brand to anyone looking for a good price, quality fridge.
Ease of use
By Taxman cometh

The first Whirlpool product I have owned and I'm sorry I waited so long to make this refrigerator purchase.
from Wickliffe, OH, United States
The crisper bins in the refrigerator have a significant gap when attempted to be closed. This gap defeats the usefulness of a humidity controlled crisper drawers.
